This Weekend: One Pancake/Year & A Nature Wish
This weekend, was all about my daughter's 7th birthday. She was awoken to a birthday breakfast of silver dollar pancakes. One per year, of course.
Being sweet, thoughtful and an aspiring environmental scientist, her birthday wish was not to jump around a noisy bounce house, but, rather to trek around Longwood Gardens. She was super excited to get up close and personal with some docile Canadian geese, climb, not one, but three treehouses, and the icing on the cake, she made friends with a very chubby black feral cat (the most exciting part of the day for her!). It was a beautifully warm and sunny day.
We gathered after the sun set for pizza, cupcakes, and TJ's chocolate chip cherry Soy Cream ice cream (I topped mine with dry roasted pecans--so good!) and, of course, gifts! Before she went to bed, she ran up to me, hugged me tightly and thank me for the nice day. See, she is sweet!
